Our Firm is dedicated not only to the practice of law, but also to the promotion of social consciousness and responsibility. We believe that it is our duty to engage in programs that address pressing social issues and concerns, such as poverty, illiteracy, lack of awareness of one’s rights, and environmental problems.
“GO GREEN” INITIATIVE
In the beginning of 2016, the Firm pledged to be a more socially and environmentally responsible organization with sustainable practices that protect and preserve our natural resources. We are shifting towards a “paperless” system to reduce the carbon footprint and impact of our Firm’s daily operations on the environment.
By going “paperless,” we are hoping to limit the use of paper, reduce overall resource consumption, and minimize our contribution to the growing waste disposal problem. This endeavor will also increase our productivity and promote cost efficiency since charges for paper, printing and transportation to deliver printed documents will be greatly reduced, if not eliminated. The Firm recently implemented a policy of sending status reports, transmittals, copies of pleadings and other documents to its clients via email to reduce its use of paper.
The Firm is also driven to instill the importance of environmental protection and awareness to its employees and staff. In this light, in 2016, the Firm concluded an environmental awareness trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
The Firm continues to develop projects, plans and means towards a kinder and greener environment.
EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE
Since its establishment in 2006, GSE Law Firm has consistently endeavored to extend a hand to the less fortunate through its various corporate social responsibility programs. In particular, GSE focuses in providing legal aid missions by educating community beneficiaries on legal rights and duties and addressing their legal concerns and issues. GSE had conducted legal aid sessions for community beneficiaries in Pasay, Muntinlupa, Payatas, Quezon City and Marikina.
In furtherance of its pursuits, GSE has partnered with different groups, such as the Ateneo de Manila Law Alumni Association Inc. (ALAAI), Wholistic Transformation Resource Center (WTRC), Center for Community Transformation (CCT), Rags 2 Riches (R2R), Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) and the AFP’s 105th Technical and Administrative Service Group Reservist Command.
GSE has likewise been active in providing fun activities to less privileged children through visits to Museo Pambata, Manila Zoo and Avilon Zoo. Every December, GSE extends financial support to Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc., which cares for abandoned, neglected and orphaned children.
